Can someone tell me how to properly measure a dovetail for a replacement sight?
Im interested in the dovetail measurements on a Llama Mini-Max

You need the angle of the dovetail, the base dimension, and the height. There are no real standards in dovetails; however, a 60 degree X .359 seems the most common. If you want to go whole hog you can order a special dovetail measuring tool from Brownells which costs about $50.
